Unformatted text preview: 2. Find 21 Position Vector An algebraic vector v is represented as; where u and h are real numbers (scalars) called the components of the vector v. Theorem Suppose that v is a vector with initial point P1 = (x1. yi). not. necessarily the origin. and terminal point P3 = (x3. yg). If v = Png. then v is equal to the position vector Equality of Vectors Two vectors v and w are equal if and only if their corresponding components are equal. That is, If v = ((11,171) and w = ((12,!)2) then v = w if and only if a] = (12 and bl = b2. . I X r (1,0) i=('1\$0)andj=(0~.1> v = (a,b) = (20,0) + b(0. 1) = ai + bj -3 -3 <2‘3> :: QL+3J 3.
